9780758225801: A Christmas Passage

It's the most wonderful time of the year for some--and the worst for others. But within the heart of every Christmas, lies a special surprise for everyone. . .

Christmas Eve morning at a crowded airport threatens to become Christmas Day when a heavy snowfall waylays five strangers on their way to Asheville, North Carolina. Marta's traveling with two children and the weight of a bitter divorce on her shoulders. . .Andy, a widower and Vietnam vet, reminisces at the airport bar when he notices the presence of a female soldier. . .Specialist Ilena is on leave from Iraq, fraught with guilt about leaving her comrades. . .Reggie, a laid-off assembly worker, contemplates his uncertain future. . .and wealthy businessman John is troubled by the untimely death of his high-powered, workaholic father.

As the travelers reflect on their lives, a new challenge soon arises: their plane is grounded. But in the spirit of the season, a good samaritan offers to drive them to Asheville. Then her van gets stuck on a snowy road--and the real journey begins for an unlikely group who have more in common than meets the eye as they embark on a magical passage that will show them the true meaning of Christmas. . .

From Publishers Weekly:

A group of travelers get to know one another under unlikely circumstances in Saperstein and Samerjan's slightly supernatural and hokey holiday tale. After a flight is canceled, the stranded passengers get a lift from a Good Samaritan, but when the van breaks down during a snowstorm, the group searches out shelter and happens upon a remote cabin, where they meet Joshua, who knows far too much about their private pasts. In coming together to create a Christmas Eve they all will remember, they put their ghosts to rest and learn to trust and love their fellow man once again. Saperstein and Samerjan, unfortunately, have a clumsy touch, and their too deliberate handling of characters' traumas really curdles the eggnog. (Oct.)
